SAUDI ARABIA: THREE SAUDIS SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR BURYING FIVE INDIAN WORKERS ALIVE
May 24, 2016: The General Court in Al-Taif sentenced three Saudi nationals to death in connection with the mass grave which was discovered in the governorate.
The court indicted the convicts of burying five Indian labourers alive in a farm located in the City of Safwa in the Governorate of Al-Taif four years ago.
Forensic experts examined the remnants of the Indian workers from a mass grave in Duwalib farm in Safwa and established that they were aged in their thirties and forties.
Police arrested the first Saudi national after a criminal investigation revealed that he was associated with the victims in producing and selling alcohol illegally, reported local Arabic daily Al-Riyadh.
During interrogation, he told the police about two other accomplices who were already serving jail terms in connection with other criminal cases.
They confessed to forcing the Indians to use narcotic pills âAl-Roshâ around 10pm, tying them, and beating them repeatedly before burying them alive in 1.5-metre-deep hole in the farm.Â (Sources: GDN Online Desk, 24/05/2016)
